Events & Dates

This website presents the events offered by the mentoring programmes ProViae and ProScience for the current programme round. It also gives information on events held in the open programme or the Spring School.

New Round from April 2023

The new round of the ProScience & ProViae mentoring programs will start in April 2023 and is scheduled for one year; this round will be in English.

The mentoring programs support young female scientists on their way to professorships or leadership positions outside the university through mentoring as well as group and individual coaching.
ProScience aims to address the issue of vocation and employability and is targeted at postdoctoral researchers and junior professors who are pursuing the goal of a professorship.
ProViae aims at advanced female doctoral candidates who, based on their scientific qualifications, wish to explore paths and positions and aspire to careers in or outside academia.

We look forward to receiving your application with a letter of motivation, references and curriculum vitae to proscience@leuphana.de and proviae@leuphana.de.
You can apply for the new round until 28.02.2023.

 

 

Please note: Participation in the events Strategic Career Planning and Introduction: One-to-One Mentoring is mandatory for mentees to ensure the success of the program.

Open Programme

12.01.2023 // Professor wanted! Planning und Optimizing your Academic Career

*This workshop will be held in German.*

The postdoc years are essential for academic career development. During this period, scientists are often torn between conflicting priorities of intellectual independence, on the one hand, and meeting professional obligations towards their employers, on the other hand. Postdocs are expected to develop an independent publication record, apply for external funding, create a distinct research profile, build a teaching portfolio, communicate their research, build a network, undertake research stays abroad, etc. etc. Which of these tasks are particularly important? What are the top priorities? Which time frame is appropriate and compatible with my personal private priorities? How important is the habilitation? And what are possibilities and important steps for international research stays? The first part of the seminar will be dedicated to learning about and evaluating the various requirements for a long-term career in academia. Based on this, you will review your current academic profile, and specify your next goals and major steps towards qualifying for a long-term academic career.

Registration via email to proviae@leuphana.de until 22.12.2022.

Facilitator: Dr. Dieta Kuchenbrandt

23.02.2023 // Motherhood and Science. Collaborative writing against the (in)compatibility of scientific activity and the image of motherhood

*This workshop will be held in German.*

The (in)compatibility of motherhood and science has been discussed for some time, but mostly as individual success stories. What has not often been publicly addressed so far is one's own perspective, one's own experiences, one's own worries and concerns with regard to motherhood and science. As a female scientist, do I want to have children? If so, at what cost? Will I be able to pursue a career in science even if I have children? What challenges do I face in academia as a mother or a female who wants to have children? We seek to address these and similar questions in this workshop.

Registration via email to proviae@leuphana.de until 22.12.2022
